Mr. Edward Flood, CEO and Chairman, commented, "Toby has been instrumental in putting together the recently announced Swala Resources transaction. His appointment to President, succeeding myself, was anticipated when he was hired 12 months ago and with the pending acquisition, the timing is ideal to allow Toby to step up and lead the newly-formed company through this exciting phase in our growth strategy."

The successful acquisition of Swala will add to Concordia's precious metals portfolio, which includes the past-producing La Providencia silver mine in Argentina, and will position the company as an African explorer with an emphasis on developing gold deposits holding the potential of one million ounces upwards. Members of Swala's team are former Anglo American plc and De Beers executives with extensive experience of operations throughout the African continent.
